At Renew Health, conveniently located in Tempe and Goodyear, AZ, we know that your hormones can be confusing. Trying to determine whether you are imbalanced or normal takes a lot of guesswork, but the good news is, that’s not your job; it’s ours. We’ll take every step necessary to help you achieve balanced hormones with hormone therapy so that you can live a healthy, energetic, and vibrant life.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Hormone Therapy?
To put it simply, both men and women who suffer from imbalanced hormones can benefit from hormone replacement therapy. Most men and women who begin to notice a change in their hormones that leads to painful symptoms are in their 40s and 50s, but age is not the sole determining factor. Imbalanced hormones are the primary factor that we will use to evaluate whether or not you are a good candidate for this treatment.
You Have the Symptoms of a Hormonal Imbalance
Symptoms are symptoms; whether they’re minor or more severe, they’re still negatively impacting your life. Symptoms are a sign. Your body exhibits symptoms to indicate that something is wrong and needs to be adjusted. In this case, your body is likely communicating with you to alert you that your hormones are imbalanced and that you need treatment.
You must listen to your body and take the necessary steps to achieve balance. Beginning this process is simpler than you may think; all you have to do is schedule your initial consultation, and we will take care of the rest. We will test your hormones, we will help you choose the right treatment method, and we will monitor your progress along the way. All you have to do is show up and be willing to undergo a treatment that will help you get natural results.
You’re a Man Walking Through Andropause
Andropause is the little-known and a little-talked-about version of female menopause. It happens to men in their 40s and 50s and marks the time when the hormones begin to drop. Andropause is often the time when most men begin to suffer from hormone imbalances. The most common symptoms of andropause include the inability to concentrate, trouble sleeping, lack of energy, fat redistribution, inability to gain lean muscle mass, and moodiness.
These are all signs that testosterone has begun to drop, but there is a solution, and that solution is hormone replacement therapy. Hormone replacement therapy can help reduce and eliminate the symptoms and benefit you in many different ways.
You’re a Woman in the Midst of Menopause
Menopause begins when a woman has not had a period in 12 consecutive months. Menopause marks when the ovaries stop producing hormones and the reproductive years have come to an end. While this process is completely natural, it can lead to some negative symptoms that can be painful and all-consuming. Some of the most common symptoms of menopause include:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Poor quality sleep
- Vaginal dryness,
- Low libido
- Mood changes
- Weight gain
While this process is completely natural and happens to every woman, there’s no reason to live in constant discomfort or pain due to the symptoms that can often arise with menopause. Hormone replacement therapy can help alleviate these symptoms and make you feel your best at the time of your life when everything around you says you should feel your worst.
Your Hormones Just Feel Off
While andropause and menopause are some of the most common life stages that force people into reevaluating their hormone levels, age is not the only determining factor. Genetics, illness, multiple pregnancies, and injuries can all result in lower than normal hormone levels in both men and women. Some patients notice that their hormones feel off in their 20s.
Hormones don’t always rise and fall at a certain life stage. They are subjective, and if your hormones feel off, chances are, they probably are imbalanced. Luckily, hormone therapy can help you increase your hormone levels so you can feel your best no matter what life stage you’re walking through.
What Is Hormone Therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy is a form of anti-aging medicine that uses bioidentical hormones, which are identical matches to the hormones your body creates naturally. When administered to the body, these hormones blend seamlessly with the bodily systems, and the body views them as its own. They help increase hormone levels, replace hormones that have been lost over time, and help you live symptom-free.
Bioidentical hormones come from nature as opposed to their synthetic counterparts, which come from more unnatural sources. Synthetic hormones lead to negative side effects and unpleasant symptoms; bioidentical hormones do not. Bioidentical hormones are made from plants, like soy or yams. The body receives these hormones and integrates them into the system to help increase hormone levels and reduce symptoms.
How Does the Treatment Process Work?
One of the most important parts of this treatment process is your initial consultation. This is the appointment that helps us confirm that you are deficient so that we can create a treatment plan for you. During this appointment, we will test your hormones through a comprehensive blood panel. Once we get those results, we will be able to see exactly which hormones are deficient and which need supplementation. Once this step is complete, we can begin the treatment process.
What Are the Different Treatment Methods?
Treating the hormones is much simpler than you may think. Hormone therapy comes in many different sizes, shapes, and forms. The most common forms of hormone therapy include hormone pellets, injections, creams, and oral tablets.
Pellet therapy is one of the most popular forms of hormone replacement therapy because it is simple, mindless, and doesn’t require any work on your part.
During this process, a small pellet is inserted into the fatty tissue of the hip through a tiny incision. Then, the pellet begins to absorb into the bloodstream, delivering hormones to the body consistently over time to restore balance and vitality to the system.
This method is so popular because it requires no work on the patient’s part. Patients only need to attend follow-up appointments three to four times a year to help maintain the most consistent hormone levels. These appointments are quick and can be performed in about 15 minutes.
Monitoring Your Progress
Once we confirm that you are deficient in certain hormones and begin the treatment process, we won’t just send you on your way. We will monitor your progress along the way, perform follow-up diagnostics to ensure that your hormones are exactly where they need to be, and make adjustments as needed.
We will answer any questions you may have and schedule progress appointments to ensure that your hormones are helping you live symptom-free and feeling your best.
Which Method Is Right for Me?
The benefit of hormone replacement therapy is that there are many different forms. This allows individuals from all walks of life to choose the best method that works for their personality, lifestyle, and needs. Additionally, if you begin using one form of hormone replacement therapy and aren’t happy with how the process is working, you can easily switch to a different method.
